    Using Fetch 4.0.3 / Mac OS 10.2. When trying to delete a folder named '2011' (and its contents) from the ftp server by highlighting the folder and selecting 'Delete Directory or File' from the 'Remote' menu, I get the above 'unavailable' error message. Here's the transcript:

    Apparently when Fetch tells the server to delete the file "2011/01.aif", the server thinks its talking about a file named "01.aif" in a directory named "2011", and the command fails. That's a problem with using slashes in file names on systems that use the slash character to separate directory and file names. You might have to ask the server administrator to delete those files from the server console.

    Thanks,
